Why Home Cooking without a Kitchen?

In 2012, there are approximately 1,700 homeless families residing in hotel and motel rooms across Massachusetts. Most of these families had access to little more than a microwave and a bathroom sink to prepare healthy meals for their children.

In response, JF&CS created Home Cooking without a Kitchen in partnership with Project Bread.

Based on five years of experience working with families living in hotel rooms, we developed recipes that are family friendly, healthy, and budget friendly.

We hope to reach as many homeless and food insecure families as possible across Massachusetts with Home Cooking without a Kitchen and welcome donations in any amount in support of these efforts.

In the meantime, we hope you get to enjoy Home Cooking without a Kitchen, too.
